Health Care In Lambeth

EDM number 963 in 1989-90, proposed by Kate Hoey on 09/05/1990.

That this House notes with concern the effect of continued government underfunding of the West Lambeth Health Authority which has led to the closure of 60 acute beds, a 10 per cent. reduction in out-patient clinics, the closure of a day unit for the elderly, the closure of family planning services, and the permanent closure of 160 beds for long-stay mentally ill patients and their re-location into private nursing homes; notes that these cuts seriously threaten the provision of an adequate health service to the community; welcomes the signature of the Chairman of the West Lambeth Health Authority on the Royal College of Nursing petition in protest at these cuts; and calls on the Secretary of State for Health to provide adequate funding for the health authority to prevent the closure of beds.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
